Students Meet, Exceed Standards at 30 North Fulton Schools

FULTON COUNTY, GA -- Thirty North Fulton County schools were recently recognized by the Georgia Governor's Office of Student Achievement for meeting the office's high standards for public schools.

Awards were presented to the schools for reaching certain levels of the Single Statewide Accountability System (SSAS), a mandate of the No Child Left Behind legislation.

Seven of the North Fulton schools earned the SSAS Bronze award, while the remaining schools earned the Silver (eight), Gold (nine) and Platinum (six) awards, all for Highest Performance.

The minimum requirements for Highest Performance revolved around a school's Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) status and whether or not its student body meets and exceeds standards.

The qualifications for Highest Performance for each award are:

Bronze: More than 20% of the school's students must exceed standards, and at least 95% must meet or exceed them.

Silver: The school must make AYP for two consecutive years, more than 25% of students must exceed standards, and at least 96% must meet or exceed them.

Gold: The school must make AYP for two consecutive years, more than 30% of students must exceed standards, and at least 97% must meet or exceed them.

Platinum: The school must make AYP for three consecutive years, more than 35% of students must exceed standards, and at least 98% must meet or exceed them.
